Underpinning the 1/8th note sequence is a quiet pad which provides an almost reverb like space to the rhythmic sequence on top which we’ll look at shortly.
This sound is made of three oscillators, which are evenly balanced. Oscillators one and two feature triangle waves, while the third is a square wave. The filter type is crucial, as the thin-ness of this sound comes from a band-pass model, with cutoff a little above the middle to scoop both bass and treble frequencies.
Resonance is set to a generous 40% to create a rich, hollow quality. To enhance the sound, we’re using an insert Filter to band-pass it a second time, adding additional resonance and some distortion to give it a saturated feel.
